Naughty technology!

It perplexed me the last few days when my iPod touch alarm didn’t go off. I didn’t set an alarm for Saturday morning, for obvious reasons. Sunday I thought I would try to get back into the swing of things with an 8 AM alarm. Woke up around 9:30 and thought “hmm, I must have not set it correctly.” This morning I set it for 6:30, and didn’t get up until 7 when my husband’s alarm went off. I was sure I’d set it correctly this time, but figured I would work it out later. Luckily, I was looking at a recipe for lentils and rice and happened to notice a top viewed story on the New York Times. It was a bug, and I feel a little silly not to have looked this up say, as soon as it happened on Sunday. Also very glad that I wasn’t going to work today or had important things going on early this morning. I see that they suggest that a recurring alarm wouldn’t have been affected, so unless I hadn’t been full of new year’s resolution, I would never have even noticed as I blithely slept as late as I wanted.
